  2. Wow, all three of your shots are fabulous. The top one is a stunner, you captured the majesty of it very well. The rondawels are unique and beautiful. Very nicely taken. And the lovely little mountain stream has a glory of its own.

  3. Hi Marianne !! Three fabulous shots for Anders' 'Rocks' theme. That first one looks like it's a giant child's building blocks!! I've seen the second one before, but glad you posted it again, as it's one of my favourite SA shots. The 'Rondawels' are beautiful. Lovely rocky stream to finish off with :-))

    1. Yes I thought I might have used it before for an I&W challenge, but had no energy to think of something else and it is so spectacular, I felt, all should see it. LOL

      Come visit and I will take you and Joanne to all the lovely places here and more.

  6. Beautiful work, Marianne! it would be hard to choose a favorite. They are all amazing. The rock formations are incredible and I love the bright greens and the coolness of the stream in the last.

  8. Marianne, these are great shots. The rock formation in Zimbabwe is incredible. It seems that it was assembled by humans.The valley view is breathtaking. The last image is pastoral. I like how you placed yourself to shoot the stream. Peter Jackson could have picked this spot to shoot the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

  9. Sorry but I can't pick up with each shot here. It looks like I would never be home at night and be out shooting 24-7. What a great studio to have. I want to come play too. >LOL<
